When I was 11, @notlockie gave me a copy of Isobelle Carmody’s ‘Obernewtyn’, beginning my love affair with her writing and especially this series. Sixteen years on and I still have that copy - you can see how well loved it is! - and today I met Isobelle at #mwf and finally got it signed. She said she hadn’t seen a copy of the original version in years! #obernewtyn #book #booklove #isobellecarmody

Dee and Jonathan in convo at Readings last night. Fab convo, she’s funny and enigmatic and has brilliant stories from her 18+ years in advertising (which happen to be in her book The Hard Sell, you should buy a copy!). (at Readings)
